    I guess you're right. World has a better solo.

    :funnypost: I guess it is the same Universe where TXF is the best Maiden album. To be honest the solo is quite good,I give you that.

    So I'm going to slowly go through these, instead of trying to get them done as quickly as possible. For the last three albums I'll just go along with the survivor.

    This is a cool underrated opener. It feels a lot like Wildest Dreams but is superior in every way. Better riff, better lyrics, better Bruce performance, and a top rate Adrian solo. It works well as an intro to the whole album without being all that representative of the sound overall. It's like they were saying, "here's your 80s style rocker, now get ready for something deeper".

    One of my favourite short Maiden songs. The true son of Rainmaker. H's solo is not only one of his best solos, but one of the best Maiden solos, full stop. And that's coming from me, the Janickist. A 9 so strong it's almost a 10.

    Also, I don't see any resemblance with the half-assed, melodyless WD - except maybe "short Maiden reunion opener".

    People keep telling me this song is better than I think it is. 6/10.

    It's a bit in the same mould as Wildest Dreams I suppose. Slightly ordinary opener. It is a bit of a grower though and the poppy chorus is ok. I like Adrian's short solo and I like the theme of the song, perception and feeling out of place.

    Quite good, but the album doesn't really start until the next song.

    Oddly enough, the weakest track on the album is the opener. Different World is engaging, typical Maiden with a cool verse, guitar unison and great Adrian solo, but it ultimately feels like a retread of Wildest Dreams. Clearly a song written for the sole purpose of releasing a proper single as it shares virtually nothing in common with the sound or theme of the rest of the album. There’s nothing wrong with Different World, but it’s paint-by-numbers Maiden.

    Such a fast, strong track, shorter than I believe every other song on the album, yet personally I find it one of the most enjoyable. Surprised everyone else doesn't seem to care much for it. 9/10.
